Initial details say that 27-year-old Douglas Alexander Urrutia was walking across the roadway. While doing so, a westbound vehicle struck Urrutia, causing fatal injuries. The other driver left the scene, but details suggest authorities may have identifying information about the vehicle, said to be a 2020 black Ford Mustang. Additional details remain unconfirmed.

If it's true that authorities have information to identified the runaway driver, that's very encouraging. Even if a driver leaves the scene, having details about their vehicle, especially a plate number, almost always leads to that person getting their day in court. Once that happens, steps can be taken to find out why that person decided it was more important to avoid the police than to take responsibility and to help the victim who might still be alive had the driver stopped immediately and called for help.
